Frederick Judd WAUGH

Born in Bordentown, New Jersey, the artist studied under Thomas Anshutz and Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy (1880-81). He then went to Paris to attend the Académie Julian where he was a student of Bouguereau and Lefebvre, returning to settle in Philadelphia. Prior to moving to England, he sent paintings in to the Paris Salon (1892); for some period in 1894 he painted in the Channel Islands at Sark.

He took up residence in St Ives, Cornwall, and began exhibiting at the Royal Academy, but was living in London by 1899. He contributed a number of illustrations to London periodicals. By 1907 he had returned to live in the United States.
